The violence of the Marikana massacre nine years ago is evidence of the value placed on workers’ lives. This is the criticism from the president of mining union, Amcu, Joseph Mathunjwa.
He was speaking as the families of the Marikana victims are still awaiting justice.
This process has also been affected by the inaction of the State against the police officers who had gunned down 34 mineworkers at what was then Lonmin platinum mine. So far only 9 policemen have been charged, of which four have been acquitted. Officials and businessmen who decided on the brutal action have evaded charges.
Guest: Joseph Mathunjwa – President, Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (Amcu)
